New from Voxengo is the next major version of the PC VST plug-in called Soniformer, a mastering tool for DAWs that allows the user to form and reform the sonic structure of any sound material.
The main idea behind Soniformer is a spectral balance. A perfectly balanced mix can be seen on a spectrum analyzer as a smooth spectral curve with minimal number of peaks and notches. There can be some deviations from this rule, but generally it always applies, says Voxengo. Soniformer uses compression to adjust the spectral balance of any sound material being processed in a way that its spectral curve fulfills the aforementioned rule. Thus, Soniformer could also be called a spectral compressor.
Every parameter of Soniformer is defined by means of a graphic envelope which is freely-modifiable and which may contain up to 16 control points.
Soniformer implements both compression and expansion, which allows a variety of different sound structures to be created, including classical tape compression, unobtrusive bass expansion, and general mix compression.

Version 2.0 is a free update for all existing registered users of the previous Soniformer version.
